Happy Hundredth

By Bryan Davis

Kindness is a word often heard when speaking with May Cosper. She uses it frequently to describe family, friends, even the times and places of her past. And it’s perhaps that gentleness, that kindness she so values, which has helped her see life in a positive light for almost 100 years. The Bosque County native, a resident of Lutheran Sunset Home since June, will mark that milestone day on Oct. 14. May Estelle Cosper was born in 1916 on her parent’s farm at Spring Creek, 12 miles northwest of Meridian. She was one of eleven children born to Willie and Mollie Cosper. Only she survives. She recalls with great fondness a childhood where hard work, faith and love saw the family through good times and bad.

The art of creating

 By Simone Wichers-Voss

The former home of Norwegian immigrants Jens and Kari Ringness in Norse has been lovingly restored and is now a museum. Spring and fall are the perfect seasons for the homestead built in 1854 – with the doors and windows open, the breeze cools the rooms; the soft light accents the limestone blocks and the wood. The season accentuates the beautiful simplicity and serenity the six-room dobblehus offers.

A world of his own

By Simone Wichers-Voss

When Kristiana Pelot started quilting a special baby blanket she called Buddy quilts, they became a big hit with the parents and children who received them. From this special baby blanket, the idea and the theme for her book “Bucky and the Navigator” to her after watching her own little brother go through his baby blanket drama and her family not understanding the needed security it brought him. Many people in Meridian will know Kristiana Pelot as Kris Toman, the energetic barber on Main Street.
